November 5-14, 2022
Ricky Tims leads a ten-lesson, ten day photography class for those who want to take better photos using their smart phone. This is an immersive smart phone photography course.
View the CLASS IMAGE GALLERY above to see images that were taken and edited using only a smart phone.
BEFORE REGISTERING PLEASE READ ALL THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY.
Join Ricky Tims for this informative, interactive* online smart phone photography class. Learn how to compose and frame better. Editing will also be covered. All you need is relatively late model smart phone.
• Ten Sessions spanning 10 days.
*An interactive class means that Ricky is actively involved in reviewing the submissions and offering daily evaluations. It is not intended to be a self-paced course (do it on your own). You will share the experience with all others in the class. You will find inspiration by seeing the results of everyone who is taking the class.
Optional fun editing apps will be covered, but are not required.
SCHEDULE - November 5-14, 2022
There are no LIVE sessions. Each pre-recorded video session is posted at midnight and you will review it at your convenience after it is posted. Class PDFs may be printed for your own personal notebook. You will have the day to take an image and post it.
Each day Ricky will issue an evaluation of the images and note the particular aspects (based on the submissions) that will be helpful for the class.
WHAT IF I CANNOT ATTEND AT THE SCHEDULED TIME?
There is no "scheduled time". This is not a Zoom class. Lessons (videos) are posted each day. All of the class information (links, PDFs, and videos) are yours forever. You can review the course anytime, as often as you wish—forever! You can even register and take the class later as a non-interactive, self-paced course if you wish.
It is preferred that you use a late model smart phone. Ricky cannot validate your choice of phone (he uses iPhone), but the higher the quality your camera phone, the higher quality your images will be. Regardless, you can still benefit and learn by using an older phone, so don't let that deter you in your decision if this course sounds desirable.
You will need WiFi connection to stream the video lessons. Videos are not downloaded - they are streamed. You have access to all lessons, videos, information, and links forever.

TAKE A FEW PHOTOS - SELECT YOUR FAVORITE
EDIT YOUR PHOTO (once editing is covered)
UPLOAD AND SHARE YOUR PHOTO WITH THE CLASS
ONLY ONE PHOTO ALLOWED PER LESSON
How does the class share images?
The lessons are presented at www.photoclassforyou.com but they are shared on a photo sharing site called Smugmug.com. Students are provided with a unique upload link each week. The images are uploaded to a gallery at Smugmug.com. You do not have to have a Smugmug account to upload images or to view the images and participate in the class and view the images. However, you will need to login to Smugmug to interact and add a comment on someone else's image. This will be explained in more detail during class.
Who Can Comment?
This is an interactive class and everyone should attempt to review the submissions of their classmates and add comments. However, in order to protect from spammers, Smugmug.com only allows comments when visitors are logged in to Smugmug (not to www.photoclassforyou.com). You can log in to Smugmug using either:
1. Your own Smugmug account (minimum $40 per year - and, I feel, worth the price) - not necessary for this class.
2. Login via Facebook account - recommended
3. Login via Google account - also recommended
TERMS OF SERVICE:
PERMISSION BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER/STUDENT FOR ALL OF THEIR SUBMITTED IMAGES IS AUTOMATICALLY GRANTED TO RICKY TIMS TO BE USED IN A MEMORY BOOK AND OTHER PROMOTIONS (ONLINE, PRINT, or VIDEO) AS THEY RELATED TO PHOTOCLASSFORYOU.COM.
What is my commitment?
It is estimated that you will need about 1-2 hours for each lesson.
What if I miss a submission?
There is no required homework. A list is not kept of who is and who is not submitting. There is not a grade given. You will do what you can without question.
What Happens to These Lessons in the Future?
You will forever be able to login and access the lessons and videos associated with your purchased classes. If you find you have to take a break from the challenges, but would like to review these on your own in the future, they will always be there for you to login and access under your My Classes tab. The My Classes tab only appears when you are logged in to www.photoclassforyou.com.
